The entire installation of Docker on Fedora Linux consists of four simple to follow steps:
  1. Install Docker package
  2. Start docker service
  3. Confirm that docker started correctly
  4. Enable docker to start after reboot
Let's start by the actual docker installation on Fedora Linux.
# yum install docker

The intention of this config is to provide simple to follow steps on how to configure anonymous Internet browsing on Fedora Linux using privoxy and tor. Both services tor and privoxy are standalone services where tor provides anonymity using onion routing techniques and privoxy is a proxy server with content filtering and advertisement blocking.

Let's start by installation of both services:
# yum install privoxy tor
After the install start tor:
# service tor start
Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start  tor.service

The following config will demonstrate how to install Adobe Flash player on Fedora Linux. The following linux commands are separated into two sections to show Adobe Flash player installation for 32-bit and 64-bit architectures.

Adobe Flash player installation on Fedora Linux 32-bit

# rpm -ivh
# rpm –import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
# yum -y install flash-plugin

Currently, the default python version on Fedora Linux is Python 2. Later Fedora Linux release 22 will ship with the Python 3 as a default version. In this config you will learn how to switch between python versions on Fedora Linux. Let's start by listing all Python versions available on your Fedora system:
# ls /usr/bin/python*
/usr/bin/python   /usr/bin/python2.7         /usr/bin/python3    /usr/bin/python3.4m           /usr/bin/python-coverage
/usr/bin/python2  /usr/bin/python2-coverage  /usr/bin/python3.4  /usr/bin/python3-mako-render
Now, check your default python version:
# python -V
Python 2.7.8
To change python version on per user basis simply create a new alias in you .bashrc located under your home directory:
$ alias python='/usr/bin/python3.4'
$ . ~/.bashrc
$ python --version
Python 3.4.2

In this config we will install a official Nvidia GeForce driver on Fedora Linux. The system used for this installation is Fedora 21 however, the below config should work for any subsequent Fedora Linux release version. First download the official NVIDIA driver installer from Your driver version will be different as this depends on your graphic card version eg.:
Two conditions must be fulfilled before we can start the actual NVIDIA driver installation:
  • nouveau free nvidia driver must be disabled
  • X Server must be disabled
To comply with the both above conditions the below command will disable nouveau nvidia driver:
# dracut --omit-drivers nouveau /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r) --force
